W is for Waterfall Card

Stampin Up Waterfall Fun Fold Birthday card using This Little Piggy stamp set. For more fun fold card ideas visit www.juststampin.com

Welcome back to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is a Waterfall card…It’s raining Pigs!  I absolutely love “This Little Piggy” stamp set and thought I would have some fun with them on today’s card. You will be amazed how easy this card is to create and whoever receives it (if you can part with it) will have tons of fun pulling the tab and seeing what comes next!

Here’s the details to make this fun waterfall card…

I started with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Flirty Flamingo for my card base. I adhered a piece of DSP that measures 4 x 5 1/4 piece to the base. The pull tab measures 2 x 8 1/2 and is scored at 1 3/4, 2 3/4, and 3 3/4.  Fold the score lines facing you. Punch the long end with the Tag Topper Punch.

The images are stamped on 3 pieces of 1 3/4 x 2 pieces of Shimmery White using the Basic Black Archival Ink and colored using an Aqua Painter. These are layered on 2 x 2 1/4 pieces of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered to the pull tab with sticky strip. Attach the sticky strip against the folded edge.

Adhere pull tab to a 1 x 4 1/4 strip with Tear & Tape. Attach Tear & Tape to the ends of the strip and center on the card front.

Fold a piece of 5″ ribbon through the tab for to pull the waterfall. These little piggies are so stinkin’ cute! I stamped the front of my envelope to match and used the same DSP on the flap. Fun and Done!

V is for V Fold

Welcome to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is a V fold card.  I love the surprise inside when you open this card.

Stampin Up fun fold card using Beautiful Bouquet, Floral Statements, and Thankful Thoughts stamp sets with Bouquet Bunch Framelits. For directions and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

This is not as hard as it may look.  I have lots of photos for you. My Basic Balck card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. The inside piece is 5 x 8 whisper white scored at 4″. I measured 1 1/4 inches on either side of the center score line and made a mark.  I also marked 1 1/4 down the center score line. Then I used the Stampin’ Trimmer and scored from the marks across the top to the mark on the center score line.

 

 

Fold along the center score line then gently fold the sides forward.  It looks like a V.

 

I used the Boutquet Bunch Framelits to cut 2 stems to adhere on each side of the “V”. These will fold in when the card is closed.  Do not adhere on the center fold.

 

Stamp and cut flowers to adhere to the bouquet. I used the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and matching framelits. You can purchase this set as a bundle (145297) and Save 10%.

 

Here’s a close up of the flowers. I added a few Perfect White Accents and Pearl Basic Jewels to the centers of some of the flowers.

I used the Floral Statements Stamp Set for the front of my card.  I stamped the sentiment on the new Glossy White Cardstock. I love this paper as it makes it even easier than ever to color using Markers.

U is for Upright Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card features the new Bright Wishes Stamp Set. It is an Upright Z-Fold which is quite unique.

Fun Fold Upright Z Fold card using Stampin Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and watercolor pencils. For more ideas, directions, and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

The wishing well reminds me of my childhood.  We had a wishing well in the middle of our side lawn and it served as second base for many kickball and softball games. I remember tossing pennies in the well and making a wish! Here’s a photo of me standing by our wishing well when I was 5.

img_2119-1
I couldn’t resist using a penny to hold my card “upright”.  Here’s the details how to make this unique fun fold.

My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  The DSP is from Delightful Daisy. My pieces measure 4 x 5 1/4 and 4 x 2 1/2.  The stamped panel is 3 x 4 layered with 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Basic Black.

I liked it in the black and white but then decided to color it using the watercolor pencils and blender pen.

Which way do you like it…black & white or colored?

Here’s the side view.

This really is quick & easy to make. Just make sure when adhering your stamped panel you only put adhesive on the bottom half.  I attached the penny with a Stampin’ Dimensional to hold the card upright. You could easily stamp a sentiment and pop it up to hold your panel.  I chose to stamp my sentiment on the back for this card.

I really like the sentiments in this set…the different choices make it versatile for many occasions.
